The resort town is a busy port and adventure hub. In fact, it is the prime getaway to Antarctica’s vast continent. Ushuaia takes full advantage of its location, so before you board the ship, make sure you visit this charming town and the surrounding area, especially Tierra del Fuego National Park.
The Falkland Islands are an interesting addition to Antarctic voyages, from spectacular cliffs to vast white-sand beaches and large colonies of albatross and King penguins breeding at Volunteer Point. The archipelago is a pristine location for beautiful scenery and stunning wildlife.
The island of South Georgia used to be a huge Southern Ocean whaling industry from 1904 to 1966. Nowadays, the last vestiges of whaling station remain on South Georgia and you can visit the Grytviken cemetery near the abandoned whaling station in King Edward Cove. No permanent native population lives in the territory and the number of wildlife is overwhelming: 30 million breeding birds including 7 million penguins and 50% of the world's population of southern elephant seals that provide rare opportunities for close wildlife interaction.
Travellers sail to vast Antarctica also known as the Great White Continent. The Antarctic Peninsula is the northernmost part of the mainland, also the warmest. The expedition team offers many activities from kayaking through majestic icebergs to navigating on a Zodiac and set foot on the continent to admire magical landscapes and encounter elephant seals lying on the ice.
